DEGREASING

Keeps Wind Turbines Turning

A supplier of wind turbines needed to degrease the walls of a turbine tower after an oil spillage 80 metres above ground.

The oil came from the turbine engine following a gearbox failure. The required degreaser also had to be compatible with high-voltage electrical cables.

De.Solv.It High Performance Degreaser (DSI 1000), a Defence, Aerospace and Automotive certified, non-flammable degreaser with a di-electric strength of 50,000v proved successful and was chosen for the ongoing maintenance and clean-up operations on the turbines.
